As 2015 comes to a close, one major international Melee event remains: DreamHack Winter 2015. After a successful first Melee event in London, England in September, DreamHack is back with more talent, commentators, and more hype. For the world's best, this will be the tournament for them to end off 2015 successfully, and show their best before Genesis 3. This article will cover all of the storylines going into DreamHack, as well as where to watch the tournament and the schedule.
Ever heard the playstyle of a fellow Smash player described as 'lame'? Wonder what it really means or if the term is even being fairly used? Omni is back with another of his signature vlogs to discuss playing 'lame'. In it he talks a bit about the use of this moniker, how some players (including famed Melee God Hungrybox) have been treated for playing 'lame' and more. Give it a watch!
When it was announced that Mewtwo would 'strike back in Smash 4, it left many fans excited. Players hoped he would rise beyond his poor standing in Melee where he currently is 21st on the tier list. The dev team dreamed of creating the world's strongest Pokémon, but did they succeed? We brought in three Mewtwo experts to weigh in on the character.

We sat down with five professional Smash 4 players who use the 'Wiichuck' to get their thoughts on the situation. Be sure to come read, vote in our poll, and sounds off in the comments!

Not many players can say they have double eliminated a national threat in Smash 4 but just that happened this weekend at The Frame Perfect Series. With a $1000 pot bonus and more on the line the competition was intense with Smash 4 talent like Sol, MVD, Fatality, 8Bitman, Nick Riddle, and ESAM in attendance. But as ESAM took the stage for top 16 winners he was defeated. In losers semis he was eliminated from the event by the same player. Who took him down? DJ Jack.
Just over a week ago, the announcement of Final Fantasy's Cloud coming to Smash 4 took the world by storm. Most were expecting the winner of the Smash Ballot, and many were not expecting another third party representative to come so soon after Ryu's release. But what really made Cloud's announcement for many was his incredible trailer. From the iconic opening to the FF7 references, the trailer brought the hype for everybody. But for those in the competitive community, Cloud's trailer showed off many of his moves, and gave a very good look as to how he will play.
